and point 6 was allegedly senator hagel said that the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office, which i think would be breath taking if he said that, had such a view and i got a letter back from senator hagel, in response to my question, did you say that and do you believe that, and, the letter says he did not recall saying that and disavowed that statement. >> chris: is that enough for you? >> well if that is true, that would end the matter because he previously said in a book the jewish lobby intimidates members of congress, particularly the u.s. senate and makes us -- pushes us to make very bad decisions. if the second statement were true, he said, the secretary of state's office is under the control of the israeli foreign ministers, those two together, would edge our view of the israe israeli-u.s. relationship way out. >> chris: democrats say you are playing politics with national security. here's what president obama said. >> president barack obama: it is just unfortunate that this kind of politics intrudes at a time when i'm still presiding over
senator hagel said that the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office which i think would be breathtaking if he said that to have such a view. i got a letter back from senator hagel in response to my question did you say that and do you believe that and the letter said he did not recall saying that and he disavows that statement. >> chris: is that enough for you? >> well, if in fact that is true, that would end that matter because he previously said in a book that the jewish lobby intimidates members of congress particularly the u.s. senate and makes us pushes us to make very bad decisions. if the second statement were true he said that the secretary of state's office is under the control of the israeli foreign ministers, those two together would show an edge and a view of the israeli u.s. relationship way out of mainstream. so i will just take him at his word unless something new comes along. >> chris: senate democrats as you know say you are playing politics with national security. here is what president obama said. >> it is just unfortunate that thi

confirmation hearing this week when asked about the u.s. policy on iran's nuclear program. time tore the sunday group. kevin madden. nina easton of fortune magazine. laura ingram and former democratic senator evan bayh. you have served in the senate for are 12 years. have you ever seen a nominee for a top cabinet post have a worst confirmation hearing? >> well, chuck didn't bring his a game first. i think everybody can see that. probably chuck first and foremost among them. at the end of the day it is not going matter. elbe confirmed as secretary of defense and because there is a strong presumption that the president gets to choose his own cabinet absent disqualifying from a personal standpoint. nothing like that here. many of the republicans will vote no largely because it is an easy no vote. the president gets his cabinet. the key question is does someone like a senator like ted cruz decide to filibuster. it will create heart burn for moderate republicans. the final analysis the ultimate takeaway for this is the next time secretary of defense hagel comes before congress or has a press confere
